Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ms. DuBois and I teach 5th grade ELA and Social Studies at MCES. I graduated from East Carolina University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (K-6) with a reading specialist certification. Reading is my passion. I believe everyone has the potential to love reading. Some people just haven't found that "one" book yet.
When I am not in the classroom I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love being outside in nature and exploring new places. Reading is my favorite solitary passtime. During the school year I can be found reading books my students recommend. I want my students to feel empowered and to know that I value and respect them as individuals.
I look forward to another year with my students. 2020/2021 may look a bit different than what we are used to, but together we are about to embark on a Mission Possible!
We are offering a new opportunity for our families this winter break. Parents are invited to sign up to receive holiday meal kits that will be distributed from all of our high school sites. Each meal kit will include seven days of packaged breakfast and lunch meals per child.
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
